Despite being advertised as open from 11am-7pm when we arrived at around 1pm on a Wednesday we were told by the young man who opened the door that the museum was closing and would not be open again until Saturday. Check beforehand if you really...More

The display above the ruins of ancient Jewish quarter tells the history of Jews in Barcelona. There is not much of a collection. If you're interested in that subject I would highly recommend visiting the nearby old synagogue and hear the explanation.

Pros: Good to get basic history of Jews in Barcelona, short visit Cons: Small museum, limited information on Barcelona's Jewish community, difficult to reserve guided visits I wish they'd provide more information on the current state (and future) of Jewish communities in Barcelona (Catalunya)

This museum is very well done, well explained on the audio guides and is extremely interesting. But a can a city museum afford not to accept credit cards?!

It was the only museum we visit after we got a recommendation from our Runner Bean guide. It was fantastic way to discover the history of the city. Fortunately, not everything is translated to English and this was quite disappointing.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
